The Best New Makeup Launches Coming This Year | March 2019

It seems like every time you open Instagram, a beauty brand is launching a new palette, lipstick, or contour kit. While it certainly keeps getting ready fun, the sheer volume of products dropping on the regular makes it impossible to try everything—or even know where to start. That’s where our beauty team comes in. Luckily for you (and us), it’s our job to sort through the piles (and piles) of makeup that cross our desks each month to narrow down the best new makeup launches that are worth adding to your collection. Check in all month as we add our favorites from March to the list.

Rainbow Nails Are the Coolest Manicure Trend This Spring

If you’ve ever been intimidated by the nail polish wall at your local salon, you’re definitely not alone. With so many options, it’s usually pretty overwhelming to decide on the color you want right on the spot. If you’re as indecisive as we are, we’ve got some great news: you no longer have to make a choice, because rainbow nails are officially a thing.

Rainbow manicures have been popping up on Instagram over the last couple months—each with a cooler iteration than the next. Although the OG rainbow manicure seems to be just a different color on each nail, it’s since evolved and can take the form of rainbow french manicure or rainbow nail art (think a different color flower on each finger).

Although the trend is playful it’s also caught the attention of high fashion, seen most recently at the United Colors of Benetton show at London Fashion Week and on models like Gigi Hadid (her manicure is extra rich because it literally features euros).

The appeal is obvious. Beyond being able to wear all your favorite spring shades at once, it fits perfectly with the many other trends everyone is obsessed with right now: hair accessories, prairie dresses, tiny bags. All a little kitschy, all a lot of fun.

To pull off the look, you’ll need to stock up on a bunch of different shades. Shop our favorite colors for rainbow nails below.

Gayle King Kept Her Cool in the Face of a Terrifying R. Kelly

Watching R. Kelly’s sit down with Gayle King on CBS This Morning was intense. Thanks to teasers and some photos King posted last night on her own Instagram, I knew going in that Kelly would, at some point, lose his temper. But seeing it all play out was more terrifying than I expected. I can only imagine how it must have felt for the women who have been brave enough to come forward and share their stories about alleged sexual abuse on his part, or for any other survivors for that matter.

Kelly, in his first interview since the airing of the Surviving R. Kelly documentary series on Lifetime, categorically denied all the allegations against him. “I’m very tired of all of the lies,” he said when King asked why he agreed to talk to her. “I’ve been hearing things, and you know, and seeing things on the blogs, and you know, you know, I’m just tired.” When she named the women who participated in the documentary, he replied, “They are lying on me,” a phrase he repeated multiple times.

According to Kelly, his accusers (and the world, it would seem) are conspiring against him and making up stories for their own gain. “All you have to do is push a button on your phone and say, ‘So and so did this to me, R. Kelly did this to me,’ and if you get any traction from that, if you’re able to write a book from that, if you’re able to get a reality show,” he says, “then any girl that I had a relationship in the past that it just didn’t work out, she can come and say the same exact thing.”

Sharing your deepest pain with the world in the name of justice has never, to my mind, seemed self-serving. And while it will be up to the courts to decide whether Kelly will face legal punishment this time around (he was previously acquitted on child pornography charges and is currently facing 10 new charges of sexual abuse), the evidence in the court of public opinion is damning.

Kelly, by talking to King, must have thought he would somehow be able to change that. When he eventually blew up in anger and frustration, I recoiled. Thoughts of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings also came to mind, another moment where we saw a man scream and rage and cry in order to try to make his point. Like the women of the Senate Judiciary Committee, King remained steadfast and tough in her questioning. Even what he was saying sounded familiar: “I didn’t do this stuff! This is not me! I’m fighting for my fucking life! Y’all killing me with this shit! I gave y’all 30 years of my fucking career!” He believes he has been “assassinated” and “buried alive.”

To me, he seemed unhinged.

Others on social media had similar reactions to his aggressive behavior.

There was also (much deserved) praise for the way King handled herself in the face of an angry, menacing man. I cannot say that I wouldn’t have gotten up from my chair and walked away. King said that she did not feel like she was in danger of being hit by Kelly, but I wasn’t so sure watching from the safety of my living room.

If Kelly’s interview proved anything to me, it is that he is a man who seems to hold a deep contempt for women. He put that publicly on display for the world today. And in the face of his anger, a woman remained steadfast—much like his accusers before her.

That’s what I’ll take away.

Taylor Swift Says She’s Officially ‘Outgrown’ Her Squad

A few short years ago, no one could think of Taylor Swift without thinking of her squad—that is, the crew of women who made frequent surprise appearances at her concerts and on Instagram, including Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss, and Cara Delevingne. The squad appeared to dissolve during Swift’s Reputation era, which left fans wondering whether Swift and her posse were no longer friends. For some of those friendships, that is the case—and Swift just explained why.

In a new cover essay for Elle, Swift opened up about 30 lessons she’s learned in her twenties. (Swift turns 30 in November.) One big takeaway? Some of those famous squad friendships weren’t so lasting.

Swift describes these as “situationships,” which she has since outgrown. “Something about ‘we’re in our young twenties!’ hurls people together into groups that can feel like your chosen family,” she wrote. “And maybe they will be for the rest of your life. Or maybe they’ll just be your comrades for an important phase, but not forever. It’s sad but sometimes when you grow, you outgrow relationships. You may leave behind friendships along the way, but you’ll always keep the memories.”

Swift didn’t drop names in her essay, but a glance at her social media presence can give you an idea of who she’s spending time with now. She added that surrounding herself with a squad of friends came from insecurities she had as a kid. “Never being popular as a kid was always an insecurity for me,” she explained. “Even as an adult, I still have recurring flashbacks of sitting at lunch tables alone or hiding in a bathroom stall, or trying to make a new friend and being laughed at.”

So when the opportunity came for Swift to throw giant 4th of July parties with a crew of models and actresses, she went for it. “In my twenties I found myself surrounded by girls who wanted to be my friend,” she wrote. “So I shouted it from the rooftops, posted pictures, and celebrated my newfound acceptance into a sisterhood, without realizing that other people might still feel the way I did when I felt so alone.”

Swift added that she knows who her true friends (and fans) are today: “the ones who stuck around” during her feud with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, and the following Reputation era. “I learned that I have friends and fans in my life who don’t care if I’m #canceled. They were there in the worst times and they’re here now.”

This essay is the latest entry in Swift’s slow return to social media and the public eye. In recent months, she’s showed up at a few events, wrote a second essay for Elle UK‘s April issue, and hinted that new music is on its way. She’s also shared a few looks at her current friendships, including a hangout with Selena Gomez and Cazzie David. Fans are confident that this return to social media and the public eye all point to a new album and era for Swift—but if her essay is to be believed, the resurrection of the Swift squad won’t come with it.

Watch Prince Harry Surprise a Crowd by Bringing Meghan Markle on Stage

Maybe we should just start calling Meghan Markle and Prince Harry the Duke and Duchess of Heart-Eye Emojis, as they continue their reign as the most publicly affectionate royal couple. The latest of piece of evidence: Prince Harry bringing Markle out on stage after he gave a speech in celebration of WE Day UK, an initiative that celebrates young leaders and encourages them to take part in social change.

“I’m now going to try and drag my wife on stage,” the Duke of Sussex said before walking over to help Markle onto the stage while the crowd cheered loudly. As the Duchess of Sussex waved to the crowd, Harry said, “I am with you, and we are with you, now get to work!”

Watch the sweet moment for yourself in the video below:

And, of course, there was hand-holding and adorable eye-gazing once Markle made it to the stage.

This event is one that is right up the Sussexes’ alley, seeing how much they both love empowering young people. “To be amongst all of you progressive, motivated, open minded, change-makers, is what gives me hope for the future,” Harry said in his speech. “Your optimism is inspiring — you see opportunities where other people see challenges; you seek solutions when others just focus on problems.” He went on to touch on issues ranging from mental health and climate change.

While Meghan didn’t take the mic, her presence was felt before she even took the stage. “Every day you are inundated with an overexposure of advertising and mainstream media, social media and endless comparisons, distorting the truth, and trying to manipulate the power of positive thinking. But you don’t let them sway you,” Harry said. “Because you don’t need to hide behind your device to share your voice. You confidently voice your opinions because you can embrace them proudly. As my wife often reminds me with one of her favorite quotes by Martin Luther King Jr: ‘Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.'”

Well said, Your Royal Highness.

The Bachelor Season 23, Episode 10 Recap: The Women Tell All

The Bachelor‘s Women Tell All special is a highlight every season. It’s like a Real Housewives reunion, but everyone talks about things like their “journey” and whether or not they’re down for Paradise instead of, like, bickering about where their sister-in-law is sitting on a couch. It’s thrilling. (Spoilers ahead.)

My favorite part is always right at the beginning, when Chris Harrison introduces all the women we forgot about. Remember Bri? Jane? Nina? That there was more than one woman named Alex? Who are these people???

We’ll never know, because CH moves right on to asking the women what they think about last night’s drama and Colton’s fence jump. “[If I were him,] I couldn’t look Tayshia and Hannah in the eyes after that,” Sydney says. Heather agrees, wondering how he could possibly finish the show after declaring his love for Cassie.

But what did the women think of Colton when they first met him? “I mean, he’s hot,” Hannah B. jokes. And what about that whole virginity thing? “I was excited to explore a man that’s a virgin.” Demi says. “Is it weird that I was kind of turned on?” Nobody gives her an answer.

Chris moves on, setting up a montage of the various drama and rivalries that plagued the season. Right away, as soon as the video ends, Courtney starts in on Demi. Chris pauses them to let Catherine the DJ, of all people, have her time to talk uninterrupted. Not much to unpack there, so we dig into Onyeka and Nicole’s feud. Nicole still feels like she was bullied by Onyeka, but Tracy speaks up and says that’s ridiculous. “You questioned whether I was emotionally stable…just because you had seen me crying,” Nicole says to Onyeka. Nina then chimes in, saying Nicole would talk shit all the time about the other women so she’s not totally innocent in this. Then Sydney stands up for Nicole, saying it seemed like Onyeka was acting out because she knew she was going to leave soon. “At least I didn’t leave like a coward, like you did,” Onyeka hits back. Basically, Onyeka says, Nicole was different on camera than she was off camera.

“Emotions are obviously running high,” Chris says, before kicking to a commercial break.

When we return, Chris asks Katie why she told Colton that some of the women weren’t ready for marriage. Caelynn says her warning put every relationship left, including her own, into question. At this, Katie finally reveals that, yup, she was talking about Caelynn and Cassie. It all stemmed from a conversation she heard the two have on a bus, during which she claims they talked about “winning” and potentially becoming the Bachelorette. Caelynn says she and Cassie were talking about their fears that one would get engaged and what that would mean for their friendship. According to Caelynn, she and Katie talked on the phone recently and confirmed this. Not true, Katie replies. “I hate this, actually,” she says. “I feel so mad I’m shaking. That’s the manipulation Hannah B. warned Colton about.”

Hannah B. asked to be left out of this drama, but if you must know, she remembers the bus conversation and she agrees with Katie’s version of events.

This leads Chris to ask Hannah B. where she and Caelynn stand. “We’re like oil and water,” she explains, but they’re on good terms now. Caelynn agrees—they’re never going to be best friends, but they can support each other and move on.

OK, time for Demi to explain why she shaded the “cougar club.” At this point I realize: Where is Elyse???? I paused to Google—turns out she’s at a friend’s wedding—so I didn’t hear Demi’s defense. Whatever it was, Tracy is clearly still not a fan. “Demi, you act like a child,” Courtney chimes in. Demi complains that Courtney wanted to “tone down Demi,” which made her upset. Demi admits that calling Courtney the cancer of the house was extreme and wrong. Because, “you’re more like bed bugs,” she says. “I only know how to do deal with mature adults,” Courtney replies, before getting up and stuffing a damn pacifier in Demi’s mouth. It’s…well, it’s really weird. (Read Demi’s thoughts on it here.)

Then Demi comes up on stage to talk to Chris. Being vulnerable is hard for her, she says, but she wanted to show Colton how serious she was. Demi reveals she never told any of the other women about her mom being in prison; she was also scared and embarrassed to tell Colton about it, but she appreciated how he responded once she did. She seems to be doing just fine post breakup, “I know who I am and I know that I’m a badass.” With that, Harrison teases that we’ll probably see her again (a.k.a. Paradise!).

The Bachelor’s Demi Burnett on That Pacifier Incident on ‘Women Tell All’

Demi Burnett hasn’t exactly been known for her maturity on The Bachelor this season. After all, she did shame several fellow contestants for being older than Colton. But that doesn’t mean she deserved what we’ll call Pacifier Gate on tonight’s Women Tell All.

Let’s back up: Earlier in the season, Demi frequently interrupted Courtney’s time with Colton. So Courtney (or a producer, perhaps) decided that appropriate payback would be to bring a pacifier to WTA to make a point about Demi’s childish ways. But then, Courtney took things too far: When the women got into a back and forth about Demi’s behavior, Courtney walked over and attempted to shove the pacifier in Demi’s mouth. Demi reacted by throwing the pacifier back at Courtney and threatening to walk off the show.

“That was not OK,” fellow contestant Onyeka Ehie told Glamour after the show. “Don’t touch someone. If she threw it at her, that’s one thing. But she shoved it down her throat! What the f-ck is wrong with you?” Courtney, however, did not apologize and was allowed to remain for the rest of the taping.

After the incident, Demi spoke with Glamour about what happened and more. Read on.

Glamour: Can you even begin to explain what happened with Courtney and that pacifier stunt?

Demi Burnett: That was ridiculous, that was insane. She had to make some kind of statement tonight, and I thought maybe she could do it verbally. She had to resort to doing it physically, but whatever. It’s 100 percent not OK. It made her look terrible. The only reason I’m not more mad about it is because everybody knows how bad that was. Everybody can see for themselves. I don’t have time to spend on her, thinking about what she did and being mad over it and filing assault charges. I don’t have time for that.

Why didn’t producers remove her from the rest of the taping?

Demi: I am surprised. I don’t know. I thought maybe she would have some sort of repercussion for it. I don’t know. I was pissed. I was like, “Who let her do this? Who gave her the pacifier? Where’d she pull it out of?” But I agree, she shouldn’t have been allowed to stay. I totally agree with that. That’s not fair to do to someone. My initial instincts were to start swinging, but I was like, stop it, you’re an adult, just throw it at her. [Laughs]

What happened after the show ended tonight?

Demi: She won’t even look at me. I’d like to stare at her and wait for her to look at me, but she never will. It made me so angry. I was like, “Who the f-ck let her do that?” That’s not OK to do to someone. That’s not OK to allow someone to behave that way.

Chris Harrison alluded to Paradise as the next step in your Bachelor journey tonight, but were you hoping to be considered for The Bachelorette?

Demi: Yeah, absolutely. I think both of them are opportunities that could result in a relationship or more self-discovery, but it is slightly offensive when people are only thinking Paradise, Paradise, Paradise. They think I’ll be so fun there, but I have a better shot at finding somebody on The Bachelorette. I’d have more guys who would be loyal to me, whereas in Paradise a new girl could walk in at any second and they’ll just dump me and I’ll be hurt all over again. So, that’s just kind of the struggle there. But I’m open-minded, so we’ll see.
